Beaches of South Corfu
Benitses. The beach here consists of 2 narrow strips of shingle and sand separated by a small harbour. A new yacht marina has been built at the north end of the beach.
Moraitika. Moraitika has a sand and shingle beach. The sea is shallow and makes it ideal for families with children. There are some water sport facilities and sun beds. It can be fairly crowded in high season due to it being a busy resort.
Messongi. Messongi has a large sand and shingle beach with shallow calm water making it ideal for children. It is one of our favourites as the calm sea makes it good for swimming and snorkelling There are sun beds and there are taverna's/ snack bars on the sea front.
Notos. Notos beach,south of Petriti, can be reached either by walking along the cliff path from Petriti or by road through Aghios Nikolaos. It is a small quiet, sheltered, sand and shingle beach. There are a few tavernas.
Kaliviota. Kaliviota, south of Notos, is very quiet and has a sand and shingle beach which is almost deserted as there are very few tourists here. There is a taverna on one side of the beach near the boat jetty,
Kanoula. This beach is situated at the most south westerly point of the island. It is a deserted vast expanse of sand which is difficult to access by car as the road tracks are very rough. It can be reached by foot from Spartera or from Kavos (see our section on walks) and is well worth a visit if you are feeling fit and energetic.
Gardeno. Gardeno beach can easily be reached by road from Vitalades. It has a long expanse of sand with a cliff backdrop and is fairly quiet. It is good for children as the water is shallow. There is a large parking area and a couple of tavernas. This is one of our favourite beaches.
Santa Barbara. This is a long, quiet sandy beach.
Aghios Georgios. Aghios Georgios is reached by road from Argirades. It has a long sandy beach although in our opinion untidy probably due to the fact that it is a busy tourist resort.It is popular for its windsurfing and water sports.
Issos. Issos beach, another one of our favourites, is a long, vast sandy expanse of several kilometres backed by sand dunes. It is popular but because of its size it is never crowded. You can walk northwards along the beach to join the Korission beach and the lake area. There are sun beds and water sports here and a couple of beach shops. Because of the vast expanse it is also used by nudists.
Korission or Halikounas. The beach here is long and sandy and is separated from the lake by a narrow strip of sand dunes and a dirt road. This area is quiet, remote and unspoiled with no snack bars or sun beds.
Paramona and Skalas. From Aghios Matheos several beaches can be reached. Paramona beach is long sandy and quiet with a couple of tavernas but it has few tourists. From here following the coast road south there are a few other small beaches. Between Prasoudi and Skidi beach we found it good for snorkelling
